When we built the first version of Church Community Builder back in 2002, we did so with church leaders in mind. Our mission was to equip them with tools that would help multiply their efforts and grow the Kingdom. While we come alongside a lot of different leaders in the local church, years of experience had taught us that the Executive Pastor (or whoever is directly responsible for executing the vision of the church) is the key to success. When they adopt technology well and drive their staff to do the same, we can almost guarantee that the church they lead is growing, healthy, and stewarding God’s people well. This is why we have been so intentional about pouring into XPs this year.
Watch this brief video to see why this matters so much.
As Andrew said, you wear a lot of hats as an XP. As a church grows, it gets harder and harder to keep a grip on everything, and easier for people to start slipping through the cracks. If this is you, we have three important ways we want to serve you:
- We want to help you track and measure ministry health at a glance. Our new dashboards give you immediate access to the information XPs track most frequently. Now you can know where you need to drill down and evaluate your strategies.
- We want to help you eliminate ministry silos. People can be passionate about their specific ministry area, but you really need everyone to work together to achieve alignment and collaboration across the church. Failing to do so will cost you money and people.
- We want to help you steward the people and resources God has provided. As Andrew stated in the video, technology provides us with a powerful tool to steward people and move them forward on a discipleship path. We want to help you use it responsibly and effectively.
Serving church leaders is not just a marketing strategy for Church Community Builder. It is hardwired into our DNA and culture. It’s been our vision from the very beginning, and we will continue to push the envelope with software and services that can guide you to a greater level of effectiveness and success. While Executive Pastors are getting most of the love right now, you can rest assured that this is only the beginning. A whole bunch more church leadership roles will be feeling the same love in the months and years ahead. Stay tuned!
What is your leadership role, and in what ways could we ‘love’ on you in the months ahead?
